I do not recall ever meeting you before, certainly not someone
of your name (unless you were known under a different name) and certainly
you have no right to make such redicilous remarks about me. If you dont like
me that fine but I see no reason to your behaviour which I consider
offensive and unfounded. My previouse answer to someone in this newgroup
unfortunately provoked a few strong replies from others and I welcome
their argument and subsequently apologised to whoever else misinterpreted
my statement, and I have also apologised to you, my dear, but I find it sad
that you have to wage a hate campaign against me for commenting on something
you did not like to see. If you have any greviences then speak to me via
private email, I think people in this newsgroup deserve the chance to make
up their own mind without your intrusive behaviour thankyou very much.
PS. Why did you reattached my comment which you took offense but did not
attach my apology statement to you?
